  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In the United States of America we see a midget man getting married to a full-sized woman (she is a bit larger than that actually) in a Jewish ceremony - natural sound. After the wedding, the man sits on the woman's lap and asks her who is going to be the boss of the marriage. She replies, "You are, honey" and they embrace. (Footage probably dates from earlier than 1941 - looks like 1930s.)

    Also in the United States we see two male trapeze artists swinging around on a circular contraption high above a group of spectators. Act is performed outdoors.

    We then see a dog called Peter playing an upright piano and singing along (he isn't very tuneful). C/Us of his tail wagging. It is a bit disturbing!

    Note: commentary suggests that these three stories all relate to the same circus company.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
